Welcome to Brandenburg Labs

Shaping the future of audio technology

At Brandenburg Labs our vision is to shape the way people will be hearing their environment in the future. Our main focus is the development of spatial audio products, enabling a person to hear virtual sound sources like they are physically present in the listeners environment. Together with our partners we are working towards the goal to achieve a perfect auditory illusion, especially via headphones.

Our company relies on a substantial network and extensive knowledge in the fields of basic and applied research, also based on the expertise of our founder, Prof. Dr.-Ing. Karlheinz Brandenburg, best known as co-inventor of mp3. As a spin-off company of the Technische Universität Ilmenau and the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology, Brandenburg Labs can draw on many years of research in the audio field at these institutions.
